Lucie Stahl (b. 1977, Berlin) is a Berlin-based artist, whose close-up photographs often examine consumer products, body parts, and substances. In these artful arrangements of textures, Stahl’s work often plays with the idea of liquidity — from finance to bodily fluids, the slipperiness of identity. Her ‘GOO’, 2021 series captures crude oil wells with a textural verisimilitude that appears wet to the touch — but the substance, goo, is neither solid nor liquid but formless. Liminal, becoming. Stahl studied at UdK Berlin, Glasgow School of Art and Städelschule, Frankfurt am Main. Recent solo shows include dépendance, Brussels (2021), Queer Thoughts, New York USA, Freedman Fitzpatrick, Paris (2019), Cabinet, London (2018), Fri Art Kunsthalle, Fribourg (2018), Halle für Kunst, Lüneburg (2016), Dallas Museum of Art (2016). She is currently working on a solo show at Bonner Kunstverein, Bonn (opening in March 2022).
